“I have to stay in Grenada for six months to get my E2 Visa” if I use the donation route for my Grenada CBI case.
One of our clients e-mailed me this morning having been given this completely false statement, probably by a salesman selling another country’s program.
For a E2 visa the only country that has a residency requirement is the United Kingdom (which is the oldest E2 treaty). We do recommend creating connections with Grenada which is a wonderful country to visit but residency there is not required.
You can obtain an E2 visa regardless of the manner you used to obtain your Grenada passport. We have clients living in the US on an E2 investment visa to prove it.
Our Indian, Vietnamese, South African and Bangladeshi* clients have been opening business in the USA for a decade. Since about 2014 Grenada citizenship-by-investment has been a top consideration.
Prior to the new USD 220,000 share ownership program most of our clients were exclusively interested in the CBI USD 150,000 donation option.
*Although Bangladesh is an E2 country there are reasons why clients sometimes still use the Grenada route.
